Mother Nature in Monotype

To acknowledge our Women’s Day month as well a the beautiful natural environment of not only the White River region but our entire country, The Printing Girls have chosen a theme that links any aspects of the feminine with the South African natural world for this group exhibition at White River Gallery

The printmaking medium has been limited to the use of monotypes, a more visually soft technique suited to the essences of nature and womanhood. Working in monotype encourages a looser organic style and a degree of spontaneity with the artist having a certain lack of control over the outcome.

Thirty-nine TPGs picked up this challenge and their work shows just how diverse and exciting print work is when limited by theme, technique, and size.
